Conservatives, we must stay focused


Distraction (per Wikipedia) – “the process of diverting the attention of an individual or group from a desired area of focus … caused by: the lack of ability to pay attention; lack of interest in the object of attention; or the great intensity, novelty or attractiveness of something other than the object of attention.” [emphasis added] Aside from our sinful nature, distraction may be...

Mississippi school has its head … in the sand when it comes to race relations


Calling all remaining logical, level-headed, backbone-possessing public-school administrators (yes, both of you): One of you needs to get to Biloxi ASAP. In a move challenging even Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson in ridiculousness, the Biloxi (MS) School District recently decided to remove Harper Lee’s classic Pulitzer-winning novel “To Kill A Mockingbird” from its 8th grade reading curriculum. The...

Cruz says Congressional leadership void could lead to 2018 bloodbath


Speaking to the NE Tarrant Tea Party last Saturday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz warned that a lack of leadership in the 115th Congress could lead to a nightmarish scenario for Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections. “If we go through 2017 and 2018 … and the only two legislative accomplishments of a Republican Congress are a massive bailout for insurance companies and a massive amnesty...

Cruz lays out priorities for Congress


Ted Cruz is a planner. He’s one of those people who like to set priorities and then meet them. So it should come as no surprise that he’s developed a list of priorities for the 115th Congress to get back on track. Or perhaps we should leave out the word “back”. Going back implies you’ve been there before – and a strong case could be made that this Congress has not. Speaking to a gathering...
